Gene Wilder
Excuse the inaccurate trousers and trainers, but given the comparison I'll make between Wilder's Wonka and a certain other character, then perhaps, some red converse trainers were rather appropriate.... Wow.... R.I.P, Gene Wilder. Blimey. Quite a thing, to ...

A response to Sadiq Khan's endorsement of Hillary Clinton:
I love Sadiq Khan. I've been immensely proud of the job he's done as an MP over the last 10 years and of the fact that he's been chosen by over a million Londoners to be the Mayor of London. And if he wants to support Hillary Clinton , that's his business. ...

R.I.P. Harper Lee - Author of 'To Kill A Mockingbird'
When I was 14 years old, we read To Kill A Mockingbird for the first time. When we read it in class then, we didn't fully appreciate the book as a whole - only the final few chapters that covered the trial, and the result. Then in Year 10, we read the book ...

David Cameron's Britain is many things. Christian, it is not.
I don't pretend to be a Christian. But through my time,
particularly at Primary School, I felt I had quite a Judeo-Christian
upbringing. The Biblical stories and teachings that were read to us in
assemblies. Though I did not grow up to be particularly re...

I respect those with different views. But bombing Syria was STILL the wrong call.
The blog post I shared last night/in the early hours of this morning has caused a fair amount of discussion and debate, which I welcome. I should clarify one thing though: While I like and respect many of the MPs - specifically Labour MPs - that voted in fa...

Parliament Votes on Syria......
Tonight, MPs voted by 397 to 223 to authorise UK air strikes against so-called Islamic State in Syria. I am of the opinion that this is the wrong decision, and I am grateful to my MP, Sadiq Khan​, for voting against, along with many MPs including the party ...

#Piggate may be hilarious, but there are some worryingly serious implications
Getting serious about #Piggate (difficult though it is), there's something undeniably sinister about the way this has all gone on. Think about it. It seems pretty likely that as Ashcroft's been working on this book for a while, he probably had this informat...
